past season: GOD OF CARNAGE
GOD OF CARNAGE
by YASMINA REZA • translated by CHRISTOPHER HAMPTON

September 7 - 23, 2012 (Preview Performance: September 6)


Winner of the 2009 Tony Award.

"[A] streamlined anatomy of the human animal…delivers the cathartic release of watching other people's marriages go boom. A study in the tension between civilized surface and savage instinct, this play is itself a satisfyingly primitive entertainment."
—NY Times

"Elegant, acerbic and entertainingly fueled on pure bile. It's Reza's sharpest work since 'Art'."
—Variety

"Brutally entertaining…in another of Christopher Hampton's exquisite translations, [Reza] cannily manipulates social observations that appeal to vast audiences and creates characters that bring out the best in actors."
—NY Newsday

"Reza has established herself as a master [of] magnificently constructed plays."
—Entertainment Weekly

RECOMMENDED FOR MATURE AUDIENCES.

PERFORMANCE TIMES:
Thursday – Saturday 7:30 pm, Sunday 3:00 pm

Join us for AFTER-WORDS, a talk-back with the play's actors, on the first and second Sunday matinee performances.
